Oracle Holidays without Stored Procedure with 2 Week Notification

A client had a need for notifying others of upcoming holidays in some automated reports. Instead of manually adding these holidays to the reports as they were approaching, it was suggested that the dates be added to the report automatically. Through the use of SQL, the below code was created. It is not flawless, but does provide advance notification that met the client's needs.
